Breuer & Marks
'Haworthia, Haworthiopsis and Tulista: A guide for collectors and growers'
This is a book for the very enthusiastic Haworthia grower. The authors are noted growers of these plants, and have used their experience of growing them in cultivation to present their view on the grouping of the plants based on Breuer’s previous publications using their morphological characteristics, distribution, and habitat ecology – no DNA analysis here! They use the concept of a cluster with a lower grouping of aggregate to bring together the plants they believe are closely related. The names of the species for each are listed and known localities plotted on a map along with their main features.
The aim is to help growers identify the plants they have, and those they would like to acquire with a name they hope will be helpful. Each name is illustrated with quite a lot of plants in cultivation with habitat identification and try to show the variation from different locations aided by a distribution map. Brief introductory sections cover the plants history and cultivation.
